Haunted Hacker House

A haunted house would be a great way to show off a lot of the things we are working on. In 2011 we held a Day of the Dead party and while we did not show off all of our talents, it was a successful event with a lot of light and potential. We have a lot of ideas and so should keep in mind for 2012 the idea to expand to a haunted house. Another option would be to partner up with an existing haunted house production to enhance what they have already got going. Apogaea had a haunted house in 2011 so that is another idea to consider if we want some pre-Halloween experience partnering with others on our ideas.
